High and hello!
The California Emerald Cup proved to be better than ever this year with new and exciting cannabis vendors popping up, thoughtful booth and display design and upgraded brand packaging. After I set up the booth for the one-and-only Megan Champion, owner of Deviant Dabs at Darling Ranch, a female farmer and my dearest of cannabis friends, I headed out to see what the Emerald Cup had to offer and here’s what I found…
Garden Society out of Healdsburg, California took me by complete surprise. Chef inspired, low-dose edibles are just on-time in this new and emerging cannabis market. In a world where new canna-curious users are just beginning to sample edibles for the first time, this award-winning edible is proving to be a huge hit. This company is also offering a scaled-down tin filled with 10 mini- pre-rolled joints that are the perfect size to share. Love, love, love this! And, no waste!
The Legion of Bloom was my next stop at the show. I lucked out and got to meet the owner of this beautiful and trusted brand. This is the great thing about the cannabis business right NOW. I buy from local farmers. I meet the team. The owner is front and center and proudly showing off the latest batch of goods. These are the small business owners I proudly support. Legion makes one of my favorite (and strongest) vape pen products, The Monarch. It is lab tested, solvent-free, naturally grown, pesticide-free, small batch, numbered, dated and chic. The (white) vape pen is wrapped in stunning gold and white packaging. I stocked up on a handful of cartridge refills (Batch 77, sativa Florida Juicy Fruit ).
Pro tip:: if you are brave enough to hit an outdoor cannabis grow competition like the Emerald Cup, remember to stock up, as the prices at the show are about half of what they charge at the dispensary
